Vitthal Rukmini Temple

Reviewed By aski_online - Bangalore, India

Had a great visit to the temple. Had booked darshan time online and hence could bow my head on The Vittala idol's feet. If you are driving by yourself, make sure you check with the locals for the last leg of journey, google map shows a wrong parking slot on the other side of the river bank. As with most temples, its bit unorganized and you will have confusions as find the entrance gate/queue for online booking etc. we parked our car at the parking lot outside, walked 200 mtrs to the temple, showed the online ticket printout at the office counter, got it sealed, joined the queue nearby through the footover bridge and kept asking the security persons and at one point got separated from the main queue and sat for the pada darhan. Once you are allowed in, our darshan was over in 10-15 minutes. There are veg restaurants in and around (unlike the comments I was told), we had lunch from a veg restaurant on the way to chandrabhaga river. Mobile/wallets etc. were allowed inside the temple. Avoid special days if you prefer quick darshan.

Nagaon Beach

Reviewed By shrikantenso - Pune, India

The Nagao Beach is on Murud Road and about 12 Kms from Alibaug. Worth the visit since it has a picturesque location of tall trees and cool breeze flowing all the time. Best time to visit is early morning or evening to watch the beautiful sunset.

Kolhapur

Reviewed By Jacqui M

We spent a few hours in Kolhapur and visited the Town Hall museum, a neo-Gothic building which was recently restored. This is one place where locals obviously stay away from, as there were no crowds! Inside, there is a motley collection of objects on display, of little interest or significance eg maps, stoneware, chinaware. Afterwards, we were taken to the streets and local market where we saw a shop where chappal (shoes) were made and sold. The displays were colourful and goods were cheap to purchase. At the end of the day, we were treated to 'mardani khel', a traditional martial arts performance, known to very families in Kolhapur. We were treated to an impressive display of swordsmanship by 3 generations of performers, the youngest of whom looked about 3 years old! An interesting day. We also visited the New Palace museum (missable) and the Mahalakshmi Temple (recommended).

Reviewed By roundtabler - Bangalore

Located at Aravade about an hours drive from Sangli near the low hills, wide wells, and fields where Lokanath Swami was born and herded animals as a boy. Calm, serene and clean. Hallmark of a good place of worship. Worth a visit when in this side of Maharashtra

Irwin Bridge

Reviewed By Kiran A - Mumbai

This bridge was built during british rule and is one of the most iconic place of sangli. The marvelous structure is built with red rock. This bridge is use till date but due to increased traffic, an alternate bridge has come up on the north side of this bridge. It gives excellent view of the Krishna river during the monsoon when the river is flooded and also been used by spectators for viewing the visargan of ganesh idols during the ganesh festival.

Sangli Fort

Reviewed By Nilraj B - Pune, India

This is a land based fort unlike the hill/mountain top fort. It has a water filled moat surrounding it. On righthand side are the court buildings, a tall grand structure, with big columns in the front, covering verandahs. Inside, the proper kings Durbar is in building which had two guns guarding it. The Ganapati festival is hels here annually. Behind this Durbar Hall id H.H.R.C.P.Highschool in two parts, Shilekhana Chowk and Paga Chowk. In my time Shilekhan Chowk was a co-ed school where as Paga was a a male student school. There was a B.T College in the Paga Chowk in 1970s. From the school windows a vew of Jubilee Power House, its cooling fountans and continious flow of water was sees. After the Power House moat continued, and towards the Khanbhag side was Animal Husbandry Offic which had an artificial seminar center for animals. Next to the road leading out of fort was Risala or Police-line, wherein the Sangli Police personnel lived. The moat had crocodiles in it at earlier time, but most of moat was recovered to form Pratap Udhyan and inside fort housing plots of land. At the Na Bhag exit, there were again Police Residences upto old Narow Gauge Sangle Railway station. Nowadays HHRCP Highschool has reversed the role of Paga Chowk and Shilekhana Chowk. There are Colleges there.. .

Kopeshwar Temple

Reviewed By prakash k - Bengaluru, India

This is one of many marvellous places in India which were destroyed by Muslim invaders. If it would have been in its intact form it would have been greatest tourist destnation in south Maharashtra. I basically belong to some place very nearby but never herd about this place until last year. Thanks to internet and facebook because of which the place started becoming popular. The invaders have badly spoiled the stone crafts on temple. But they could not totaly demolish it. It still stands in its form carrying the wounds of ugly iconoclast brutality....Idiot Savages !!
